Dental Implants

While some of you may think that a gap in your smile gives you a bit of a “look,” a missing tooth can be a bigger problem than you think.

Think of a missing tooth as a space where a proper tooth used to be. At one point that tooth had a job: it was a chewing surface, it helped hold adjacent teeth in place, and, believe it or not, it helped maintain facial volume.

When a tooth goes missing the surrounding teeth start to shift, causing gaps and making decay more likely. Bone loss and tooth damage can also occur, with the area becoming more prone to gum disease.

A proven solution to this potentially lousy situation is a dental implant. Implants look, feel, and function almost exactly like your missing tooth, and they’re solid as a rock in your mouth.

In recent years dental implants have become a popular and versatile alternative to dentures or a fixed bridge. Implants, when combined with the right prosthetic, look, feel and function like real teeth, and are exceptionally durable.

The Procedure - Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. Over four to nine months, the cylinder integrates with the jawbone, creating a sturdy anchor point for a prosthetic (the part people see). Once the post is secure, the prosthetic, a porcelain crown is attached, filling the space once occupied by your missing tooth.

Dental Implant Benefits

For those of you who aren’t so keen on a gap in your smile, a dental implant with a well-matched crown will give you back your confidence. Dental implants look and feel almost exactly like natural teeth, making it hard to tell the difference. Not only will your smile look like it should, your teeth will be properly aligned, which makes for good oral health.

There are many different types of dental implants available. You can choose a fixed, single tooth replacement, or if you’re missing multiple teeth, removable or fixed prostheses are available.
